I always grew up eating pumpkin seeds post-carving at Halloween time. I had no idea you could use the same method with butternut squash and spaghetti squash seeds! If you follow my blog, you know how obsessed I am with butternut and spaghetti squash. Next time, don't throw away those seeds! Use this simple recipe to make a delicious salty snack!
Seeds from one butternut/spaghetti squash, cleaned
1 tbsp. salt
1 cup hot water
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Dissolve salt in hot water. Add seeds and allow to soak overnight or about 8 hours.
2. Remove seeds from water and pay dry with towel.
3. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Spread out seeds on baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Bake 5 minutes, stir seeds and bake another 5 minutes. Let cool, season as desired and enjoy!
